To replace the BMP-2: A large batch of new BMP-3 entered service with the Pacific Fleet Marine Corps

A large batch of BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles entered the Pacific Marine Corps fleet... This is reported by the Ministry of Defense.


According to the report, the Pacific Fleet Marine Corps unit stationed in the Primorsky Territory has received 3 new BMP-40 infantry fighting vehicles. The equipment was delivered as part of the state defense order in accordance with the rearmament plan for modern models of military equipment. The cars were delivered to Vladivostok by rail.

Immediately about 40 new combat vehicles were delivered to Vladivostok by rail, unloaded and transported by special equipment to the place of permanent deployment

- said in a statement.

The press service clarified that the received BMP-3 will replace the BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles that were in service with the Marines. Earlier, as part of the rearmament of the Pacific Fleet marines, deployed in Primorye and Kamchatka, armored personnel carriers BTR-82A and Tanks T-80BV.

Last year it was reported that the marines will receive the BMP-3F, a "marine" modification of the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle, which is more buoyant.

The BMP-3F is equipped with a lightweight water-reflecting flap, a telescopic air intake pipe, and water-reflecting flaps on the tower. Able to move on water with waves of three points, and with 2 points to conduct aimed fire. The speed afloat is 10 km / h, with the engine running, it can be in the water for up to 7 hours.

      Earlier, in Kamchatka, the 40th Marine Brigade of the Pacific Fleet received upgraded BMP-2M.
      Modernization: dismantling, checking the serviceability of mechanisms, replacing units that cannot be repaired. Armament: 30-mm automatic cannon, anti-tank complex "Kornet" and a machine gun.
      Information:
      In 1918, in Nikolaev (now Pugachev), on the basis of armed detachments under the command of V.I. Chapaev. the 2nd Nikolaev Infantry Division was formed. In March 1919, it was renamed the 22nd Infantry Division. In 1957, the compound was reorganized into the 22nd Motorized Rifle Division. In 2002, the division was reorganized into the 40th motorized rifle brigade and reassigned to the Pacific Fleet. In 2007, the unit became the 40th Marine Brigade in Kamchatka.

          I found two photos with towers under the sea. Probably from the foreign party.
          It is interesting how the equipment for our marines differs from what they did abroad. It is striking that in the party for ours there is no IR searchlight next to the barrel, and this is a plus - modern sights do not need them.

        Clearly.

        Yes, the Pacific Fleet marines were always provided on a leftover basis.
        Good luck guys, sincerely.
        I had to work with them.
        Respect is complete.

    My deep sofa opinion:
    MP withdraw from the Navy.
    Instead, create conventional motorized rifle units for the protection and defense of naval bases as part of the naval combat forces.
    Make MP an independent type of troops: Marines (Expeditionary Forces)
    SVO - 2 divisions (1 Arctic, 1 Northern European),
    ZVO - 1 division (geyropa),
    Southern Military District - 1 division,
    VVO - 3 divisions (1 Asian, 1 island, 1 American)
    Re-equip with modern technology.

      7 divisions of the MP, you are joking. Even the USSR did not have so much, for such a number of MPs, you need to have a fleet no less than that of the United States and calculate the costs of this.

        And 8 districts of the Russian Guard is not a lot and not expensive?)

        not joking, but quite seriously. Let me explain.
        On the one hand, 7 MP divisions are a lot and expensive, here you are right.
        But you need to understand that the Prokhorovka battles will no longer be (although everything can be with the Chinese).
        Therefore, these divisions can be created at the expense of the ground forces.

        I also want to note that progress does not stand still, and therefore it will be more and more difficult for a conscript to become a skillful fighter. Therefore, more mobile highly trained professional units are needed. Do not tell me why they are strengthening the Airborne Forces? Are we going to drop troops in Europe?
        There will be no time to train in the X-hour.

        With regards to the fleet of ships. Firstly, there was no UDC in the USSR. Secondly, dry cargo ships are mobilized during the threatened period (the Cuban missile crisis is your proof). Thirdly, if the Navy does not re-equip with new BDK / UDC, it will remain without them, since everything is very old. I am glad that attention is paid to this and new ships are being built. Which, by the way, have a larger capacity than the Soviet ones, which means they will be able to transport more troops.

        See above. Each division must be tailored to its "own" region. This means having the appropriate weapons and equipment, training, etc. In order not to run to neighboring parts in case of anything in search of a Tajik / Uzbek to translate the interrogation as 87-88.
        Total: you need more pros and different ones. Including MP

    Happy for the Marines - with an initiative! It seemed like there was news that in each brigade of the Marine Corps they would form a battalion on the BMP-3F.

    Awl for soap. When, indeed, capable of withstanding a shot from an RPG, modern BMPs will go to the troops, and not this misunderstanding?

        Well, so the point is in the replacement? With the same success, you can upgrade the BMP2 and come out cheaper. Anyway, BMP 3 is a misunderstanding, the engine is behind and the infantry has to run back through it, under bullets, 2 is much more reasonable in this regard.

          Alas! Only up to a certain limit! Further - request each the system has its limit modernization! The BMP-2 is almost EXHAUSTED! (although the car is certainly awesome good .... Alas - it WAS! crying ) .....

          And in general, BMP 3 is a misunderstanding, the engine is behind and the infantry has to run back through it, under bullets, 2 in this regard is much more intelligently worked out

          ========
          Have you ever had to run out of the BMP-3? To me - no! (only from 70 and 2). But my eldest ran from both the BMP-2 and the BMP-3. From the "three" - certainly not as convenient as from the "two", but as he later stated: in battle - with the "three" - NOBODY can compare !!!

    The car is conceptually unsuccessful. Lightly armored vehicle with a large amount of large-caliber ammunition inside. And with a very inconvenient landing. This machine remains in production for two reasons:
    1. The serial production of more modern and successful armored vehicles (Boomerang, Kurganets) was never mastered.
    2. For financial support of enterprises where they are produced.
    IMHO

      Only war will show the effectiveness of vehicles in battle.
      And no polygons can replace it.
      BMP-2 showed itself. Good or bad, not for me to judge.
      The BMP-3 is good on paper and on landfills, but there is no large-scale combat use.
